LG has announced that the Optimus Vu will be hitting the US this quarter, in the summertime. However, they did not state a carrier. So why do we mention Verizon? Because the Vu has come through the FCC bearing Verizon radios with 4G branding. We’ve also seen photos of the Verizon model in the wild. It couldn’t be coming to any other carrier.
Will anyone want it though? The 4:3 screen ratio kills it, making it uncomfortable to hold and making apps look generally weird. Plus the lack of the Wacom digitizer and integrated stylus makes it a lot worse than the Samsung Galaxy Note in every way, so I see no point in getting it.
